The activities include grinding your own flour; searching for all the models of mice and rats; following the Milly Mouse trail; having fun dressing up as a junior miller; enjoy colouring your favourite mill pictures; achieving the Discover level of the Arts Award Scheme and making lots of interesting discoveries with our I-Spy sheets for the Mill and Nature Reserve. There are also special activities organised for children for during the school holidays which need to be pre-booked, please click the link below for details.
Find All The Mice and Rats Who Live in The Mill
Use our small querns, located on the first floor, and experience the thrill of grinding your own flour which you can take home for family and friends to admire. If that has whetted your appetite then why not buy one of our bread-making kits for kids from our gift shop. Send us a picture of your baked loaf and we will put it on our Facebook page.
Grind Your Own Flour
You will have to look very carefully to find all the models of the mice and rats. Count them then jot the number down with your name and contact details and we will have a prize draw at the end of June and September. Each winner will receive a Mill Goody Bag. And don’t forget to pick up a sticker when you have completed the challenge.
